This is a sweet, beautiful short story of a princess that learns about her true worth the hard way. In fairy tales, that is usually through magical and unconventional means.
I enjoyed the premise of the story. Princess thinks she is plain and wants true love. But because she doesn't believe that she is beautiful, she doesn't think that she will ever meet someone that will want to marry her because they truly care for her. In her mind, they won't see past her plain looks. It takes a magical entrapment at the bottom of a pond before this story fully realizes itself, and our princess finally realizes that beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder, and that it resides within oneself.
Another reviewer stated that this tale would do well as a children's illustrated fairy tale, and I have to completely 100% agree.
